As an "Archive Staff" member, please do not think that diana is sheilding us-- all this is painful and viewed by all.

The Live Music Archive was started as a community driven service and stays that way. Diana and a number of other admins have volunteered their time to build this amazing resource. The Internet Archive is infrastructure for the collections. We do get involved in some policy issues, this one included.

We may be wrong on how we are pursuing it, but we are trying to promote as much access as we can. The change in GD policy may seem vague and non-transparent, and for that I apologize. I just hope that we give all concerned a bit of space to learn and grow... and that access to this music will win out in the end.

(yes, we are utopian and idealists. But that is why we are spending our lives doing this).
